We work with shelters all across the USA. The shelters contact us with a list of potential ESA's or service animals that have been placed on their euthanasia list.
Our certified handlers examine the animal. After the examination the animal is seen by a Veterinarian for a wellness check. After the wellness check the animal is transported to the tutoring facility.
At Paw Cross Foundation, we do not "train" the animal, we coach them. We work with their natural abilities and perceptive skills.
The graduates then become certified ESA's or Service animals and are ready for placement.
Here at the Paw Cross Foundation, we take a different approach to developing Emotional Support Animals (ESA’s) and Service animals. They already have the ability to become a vital member of a family unit, they just need the encouragement to focus on their skill-sets. We provide a safe environment that helps them to polish these skills. While they focus on their skills, we teach them the fundamentals of human etiquette. This produces a stronger human to animal bond.

Emotional and physical support
We have your best friend waiting for you
At this time ESA's do not have the same protective rights that Service animals are protected under. The Paw Cross Foundation is working on changing this. ESA's provide a valuable service to their humans.
Saving lives and helping the homeless, and disabled along the way.
